What a treat to do this little basket! Thank you so much again Laura for thinking of me!

This little basket was made for the baby of the bride-how sweet she must have looked carrying this down the aisle!

This small basket was painted white and has a white interior and exterior liner. I put an insertion lace between the outer and inner liner to separate them and wove a coral satin ribbon in and out through the lace to finish the look.

The wedding colors included a soft coral pink so I did the  words ” Here comes the Bride….my mommy” and the flowers in the same color.  The lettering was hand embroidered in a wrapped dotted stitch in a French script.  The bride’s bouquet and flower girls flowers (in her basket) were done in french knots. The bride’s dress was done in a beautiful white satin silk ribbon in a straight stitch over top of lots of straight stitches in regular embroidery floss to make it pop up a bit and give it more of a 3D effect.  I just love the look of this silky dress! The little flower girl’s dress is done in straight stitches with a silk ribbon sash and bow. The bride and flower girl both have french knot white flowers in their hair.

The scene is framed with a mossy green dotted wrapped stitch with french knot buds here and there in coral and silk ribbon roses embroidered at the corners. The basket is finished off with side ties of coral satin ribbon.

Best wishes to the bride and groom and to mommy’s little sweetie!
